Tibetan Fox - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (393 words)
The Tibetan Fox (Vulpes ferrilata), also called the Tibetan Sand Fox or simply the Sand Fox, is a species of true fox that inhabits the high Tibetan Plateau in Nepal, China, and India, up to altitudes of about 5300 m.
The fox was first described by the British naturalist Brian Houghton Hodgson in 1842.
A previous study in 1986 showed Tibetan woolly hare (Lepus oiostolus) and a lizard of the Phrynocephalus genus, while a separate study the previous year of 158 droppings in the Qinghai Province of China noted additional content, including Himalayan marmot (Marmota himalayana), Bharal (Pseudois nayaur), Himalayan musk deer (Moschus chrysogaster), and livestock.
